Barney Frank at the Forefront
The former congressman remains an outspoken advocate.
Barney Frank was chairman of the U.S. House Committee on Financial Services from 2007 to 2011 and co-sponsored the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act in the wake of the financial crisis. The Dodd-Frank Act’s wide-ranging regulations helped stabilize the financial system and provided a buttress during the coronavirus crisis a decade later.
